A task defines the text describing the purpose of the task, the triggering event based on which the task is started, the terminating event that marks the completion of a task, and a role that contains the rules to identify the person who is responsible for executing the task. A task can be started in response to an event triggered in the system.

Tasks are categorized as standard tasks (TS) or customer tasks (T). Standard tasks are provided by SAP and are client independent, and customer tasks are client dependent and developed by customers.

In the ALE/EDI process, tasks are mainly used for error handling. A task has been defined for every standard message and for each type of error in the process. The tasks for a message are named as _Error.Customers can change Work item text and Triggering events attributes of a task.

Roles are workflow objects used to determine the person responsible for carrying out a specific task. Each task has a role assigned to it. Roles for the ALE/EDI process are implemented as function modules in the system .These function modules can read any information stored in the SAP system. SAP sets the interface for these function modules. The return parameters of this function module are the object type and object ID.
